The Old Packard Plant in Detroit Is Being Demolished
• After more than 60 years of sitting idle, the Packard automobile plant is destroyed.
• Packard ceased operations as an independent company in the U.S. in 1958.
• The site houses about 10 buildings spread over 3.5 million sq ft.
• It is possible that some of the site will be preserved, hopefully, to honour the brand’s past.
